Local Flavor – Lincoln Restaurant Review

Here goes nothing!  I’m new to blogging, so we’ll keep this first entry simple.  This past week was restaurant week in Washington, DC and I love trying new places at a great price.  For those of you that have never heard of restaurant week, it’s essentially one week that local restaurants offer a three to four course dinner for $35.14 (or $20.14 for lunch).  My husband and I decide to venture somewhere new after a good friend told me about Lincoln’s gluten free menu.  This restaurant did not disappoint!  The service was incredible, the ambiance was so unique and patriotic in a glamorous way, and the food was absolutely delicious!

First of all, they had a specialized gluten free menu which was almost completely separate from their regular dishes to help the kitchen staff differentiate between gluten-sensitive guests.  Our waiter seemed very knowledgeable about cross-contamination, and assured us that the staff would be incredibly careful in making my dishes.  Overall I give them an 8 out of 10, definitely a restaurant I’ll return to!  Without further ado, here’s what I ordered.

Yellowfin Tuna - Poke Style Tuna, Coffee Bean Vinaigrette, Grapefruit Ponzu Jam, Honey Compressed Jalapeños, Candied Grapefruit, Smoked Crème Fraiche
